Collection: 'Monochrome' | Aboriginal and Contemporary Art Exhibition
'Monochrome'is a group exhibition of Contemporary and Aboriginal artworks highlighting the classic palette of black and white.
Showcasing visually striking monochromatic themed paintings, drawings and artefacts, the exhibition celebrates artworks where the spectrum of colour is reduced to a minimum.
Aboriginal artists featured, such asLily Kelly NapangardiandKay Rubuntja Napurrula, have seldom deviated from a monochromatic palette in their artistic practice. In contrast, a focal point of the exhibition is a painting byAngelina Ngalefrom the Utopia region in Central Australia, who has rarely restricted her use of colour in such a way.
From intricate detail to bold expression, by removing colour, the artworks featured in this exhibit challenge both the artist and the viewer to explore the composition, subject matter, and technique more intently.
